      Mr. MICHL. McNAMARA
      Waterpark, Scariff

      Mr. Michael McNamara, who died at his residence in Waterpark, Scariff, on
      Monday, had reached the grand old age of 89 years. Most of his years were spent
      in Killanena with his wife, who was a school-teacher in Duglaun, and, on her
      death some years ago, he returned to his native place. He was a brother of the
      late Rev. Denis McNamara, C.C., Cooraclare, and uncle of the Rev. J.
      McNamara, C.C., Kilmaley.

      On Tuesday evening his remains were removed to the Church of the Sacred
      Heart, Scariff, where on Wednesday morning, Solemn Requiem High Mass was celebrated
      for the happy repose of his soul. The celebrant was Rev. J. McNamara, C.C.,
      Miltown Malbay; sub-deacon, Rev. W. O'Donoghue. C.C., Bodyke, and Master of
      Ceremonies, Rev. P. Ryan, C.C., Scariff. The chanters were: Very Rev. J. Ryan,
      P.P., Scariff, and Very Rev. D. Flannery, P.P., Bodyke. In the choir were -
      Very Rev. D. Crowe, P.P. Mountshannon; Very Rev. D. A. O'Dea, P.P., Flagmount;
      Very Rev. R. Bourke, P.P, Ogonnelloe; Very Rev. T. Stuart, P.P., Kilmaley;
      Very Rev. A. Ryan, P.P., Feakle; Rev. J. O'Brien, C.C., Flagmount; Rev. P. Ryan,
      C.C., Feakle.

      The funeral took place the same day to the family burial ground at Moynoe,
      and the attendance there and also at the removal of the remains the previous
      evening was of exceptionally large proportions and representative of the district
      for miles around, testifying to the great esteem the McNamara families
      enjoyed by all classes.

      The chief mourners included a number of nephews, nieces and other relatives.
